PERSEUS WAY has plenty to recommend him on pedigree, being by Sea The Stars out of a half-sister to the 2000 Guineas runner-up Master of The Seas. He is trained by Charlie Appleby, who has already saddled 19 individual two-year-old winners this season.
Those with previous experience in this novice event set just a fair standard, so it will be interesting to see whether there is strong support for Perseus Way in the betting.
POSSIBLE AMBITION ran creditably when fourth on his latest outing at Beverley, sticking to his task well to pass the post less than 2 lengths clear. This represents an easier assignment and the return to softer going will also be in his favour. He is unlikely to find many better opportunities than this to belatedly get off the mark.
ARQOOB wasn’t seen to best effect when filling the runner-up spot at Sandown last month, staying on strongly from a poor position to be beaten just half a length. A winner at this course on his previous start, he seems to be improving with racing and a 2lbs higher mark than last time still looks workable. He is very much one to keep on the right side.
HEY TEACHER has won his last two starts in taking style, getting off the mark at Ffos Las in August before following up on his handicap debut at Epsom later that month. He was well on top at the finish on the last occasion, finding plenty to land the spoils by three-quarters of a length.
This will be tougher following a 5lbs rise in the weights, but he is clearly going the right way and shouldn’t be underestimated in his hat-trick bid.
FOUR ADAAY raced away from the main action when third at Goodwood two weeks ago, doing well under the circumstances to be beaten just a length-and-a-half. She is starting to become well-handicapped and the fact she is proven on soft going is also in her favour. She could be the way to go in what looks a competitive heat despite the small field.
DEPUTY showed improved form when last seen winning at Lingfield in July, just needing to be kept up to his work to get the verdict by three-quarters of a length. He returns here after 10 weeks on the sidelines which is a slight concern. There should be more to come from him, though, and he is fancied to defy a 2lbs higher mark to follow up under James Doyle.
SOME NIGHTMARE has now four of his last six starts, including a narrow victory at Goodwood two weeks ago. He was forced to work hard at Goodwood, but dug deep to edge his way to the front in the final strides. This looks a weak race on paper and a 2lbs rise in the weights might not be enough to stop Some Nightmare as he seeks his fifth success of the campaign.
LOVE DREAMS has been running well recently, inching closer to a win with every start. He was beaten just a head at Kempton last time and the handicapper has put him up only 1lb for that effort. He acts well on soft going and another bold bid is expected in a tricky finale.
